The Planning Board is authorized by State Statute to draft, review, and recommend ordinances and regulations and subsequent amendments; regulate the subdivision of land; review and approve site plans for development of land; review and approve excavation & reclamation plans; prepare and maintain a master plan for the town; and prepare a capital improvements program.

The board meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 P.M. in the downstairs meeting room of Town Hall. The order of business is to review new applications first, continued applications second, and then other planning board business. Applications must be received the second Wednesday of each month by 12 noon to be placed on the public hearing notice for the subsequent month’s meeting. Currently, all site plan and subdivision applications require a preliminary non-binding hearing prior to submission of a full application. Application forms, with instructions, may be downloaded from the web site or obtained through the Selectmen’s Office. The Land Use Administrator Colleen King  may be reached at 367-4332 x302 for help with procedural questions and information or by emailing the planning board at the above address.
